I HIGHLY recommend the floating bed! What a unique experience. It’s at a campground so you have access to a nice bathroom and shower. It was so peaceful and cozy, I wish I could have stayed longer / with friends!

We had a great experience. The only bummer is that the campground is so close to the interstate.

It’s like you’re in a rocking tree house! So Easy, beautiful and relaxing! We just brought a little bedding and some camping supplies and everything else is provided. This was our First time Sleeping in a tent in a tree! Actually comfortable and breezy with a beautiful view. It was really nice to get away, we definitely plan on returning. Thank you!

Wonderful, unique stay! Would absolutely stay again. The tent fits one person just great, but would be a tight squeeze for more (unless you don’t mind being very close). I brought a twin xl flat sheet to lay on and it worked just fine. Was close to the Madison County covered bridges, which is what I came to Iowa to see. Enjoy!

The camp grounds and site were very clean and well kept - the type of bathroom set up you cross your fingers for when camping across the country! Everything about the site looked great.

As one other review mentioned, it is a bit surprising to see how close the tent is to other sites, especially since it’s the only site like this there. That being said, the camp was probably 1/3 full and everyone was nice and while we were a bit concerned about noise levels while being so close to others, right at 9pm everyone went very quiet, which was nice. With the tent window closed to not see the glow from the site next to us, our only view was of nature which was fantastic. When it’s dark you feel just awful secluded as you’d imagine you would. Gorgeous naturescapes and the gentle swaying of the tent in the breeze is nature’s Xanax. I could spend days in that tent, reading and relaxing!

The only downside was that, on my first ride up in the tent (for anyone wondering, it’s an electric setup and you use a controller to move up and down) the battery drained to where the ride was very jerky and at about 7 feet up the battery died, leaving me stranded. After a quick call to the listed number, Vincent came to our rescue and all was well. He offered to put us up in the pool house as an apology for the inconvenience, but we declined as we wanted the experience of the tent! We really appreciated how quickly Vincent responded to us and that he gave us his cell number and said to call any time during the evening. Though the battery hadn’t charged enough by morning for us to enjoy an elevated sunrise, it was still just as beautiful from the ground. Still a unique, memorable and pleasurable experience.

Would absolutely stay here again and recommend the site to anyone looking for an easy on/off highway stop during a trip in a quiet, well maintained and run site!
